Oh my! This is something I promised to [livejournal.com profile] rearranged and [livejournal.com profile] badjujuboo, and is an in no way comprehensive list of things I've liked in Avengers fandom. Cutting by pairings because whoo boy, this got long! I haven't put anything in the way of summaries and tbh my laziness is so epic that this being anything more than a big list of ugly links feels like SUCH an accomplishment. Endless respect to people who actually rec properly omg.

Also! I've tried not to rec anything that is based in comic canon to such an extent that you actually need to know the canon beforehand. (AKA there are no post Civil War fics waiting to choke you with angst hurrah!)

edit: 23/10/2012 - OKAY so even just since posting this list I've read a few more awesome fics so I'm going to keep adding to this list intermittently. Enjoy!

Tony/Steve )


Clint/Coulson )


Bruce/Tony )


others, threesomes, moresomes, multiple pairings )

There absolutely MUST be amazing things I've missed out, so hey, drop anything in the comments that you think I/other people should read. As the list (especially the 'other' section) indicates, I will read pretty much anything haha.

WOW, I have done no work today because I kept rereading ALL THE THINGS. Happy sunday, guys.

Title: We Are Built From Broken Parts by missbecky
Fandom: Avengers x Doctor Who crossover
Rated: Mature
Pairing: Steve/Tony
Word Count: 36146
Author's Summary: On his first day in office, Britain's new Prime Minister unleashes an alien terror upon the Earth. The Avengers are first formed to fight this threat - only to fail. Now the survivors are prisoners on board the Master's ship. And he has plans for them.

Why I loved it: YOUSE GUYS. So this is a crossover with the episodes Sound of Drums/Last of the Time Lords which are among some of my favourite episodes (weird floaty Time Lord moment aside *snerk*) but for those of you with minimal or no Who knowledge, I think you could totally still read and enjoy it, as it is from Tony's POV, not from that of a DW character.

Essentially, when The Master (bad guy) unleashes the Toclafane (killer...alien..sphere..things? Go with it), The Avengers are scrambled to deal with it. And they fail mightily and epically and what's left of them end up The Master's prisoners on The Valiant (couldn't help a giggle at the description of that ship as 'a poor man's helicarrier') for 'the year that never was'. Naturally The Master tries to enlist Tony in arming his ships, and Tony's response and rebellion fits so well with the DW story that I confess I squealed a little in glee.

Do pay attention to the tags on the story (temporary character death, and torture in particular) but I do recommend this one a lot. As I said to the author, I would pay actual cashmonies for Natasha and Martha's story because please. Who run the world, etc. The ending is not what I was expecting, but it works and I wouldn't describe it as an unhappy ending. Go, flist, go. Awesome fic.

leashy_bebes: (remember budapest? [very differently])
Title: We were emergencies by gyzym
Fandom: Avengers
Rated: Explicit
Pairings: Clint/Natasha

Author's Summary: It's not about being unmade; it's about remaking, one aching step at a time.
Word Count: 37154

Why I Loved It: Augh. I feel like this is probably one of those fics that ruins me for all others. I don't always ship this pairing but when it works it's amazing. I would suggest you read the author's note at the end, as there are, as the author states, some parallels with a rape narrative. Basically the story is about the aftermath of brainwashing and memory-futzing. Post-Loki, Clint finds that he wasn't the only one whose mind was messed with - Natasha really does believe love is for children (again) and she doesn't remember their relationship.

This is a really gorgeously done look at how they might start to get past that, how they might mesh up their pasts when they're so full of gaps and times they've been taken apart. As well as the premise, and the obviously excellent writing (because it's gyzym) I really love the fact that this story is about two dangerous, slightly scary people in love.

Also! Not one but two podfics available for this one.
